Our microwave pork rinds are produced in North Carolina. The best way to learn how to cook them is to put 1/4 cup on a paper plate or paper towel and set the microwave for 2 minutes on high. 1/4 cup of microwave pork rinds will make approximately 2 cups of puffed pork rinds when cooked. Watch them cook thru the window and stop the microwave when they quite puffing. This will be the optimum cooking time for your unit. Let them cool for 30 seconds to increase the crunchy texture before eating. Microwave Pork Rinds are safe to store at room temperature (do not refrigerate or freeze) and remain favorable for 9 months. Not cooking right in your microwave or just want to cook more, then Bake them in your oven. Spread any amount on a cookie sheet and bake at 450 F. For the first batch start checking them on a regular basis after 5 minutes. When puffed remove from oven and allow to cool.
